Fitment Question 335is

Rims are 19x9 ET30 Front and 19x10 ET30 rear. Car is 2011 e92 335is. Stock suspension with no intention of altering at the moment. Want to run the new Michelin A/S 3's but size options are limited. Anyone think I could go 245/35ZR19 on the front and 275/30ZR19 without rubbage???

Front should clear the struct, I want to do 19x9.5 front and was told has to be et22-25 with 225/35 tires to clear the struct.

As for the tires, I would do 235/35 front and 265/30 rear.

Oh and drop your car, I am not a fan of aftermarket wheels with stock height. A mild drop will make a night and day difference.

That is the ideal tire size but for whatever reason Michelin is not making the A/s 3's in those sizes. Closest I can get is the sizes I posted.

Well since you are not lowering your car, then those sizes will work just fine IMO.

Thanks for taking the time to reply

Never even thought of dropping it. What is the best method to accomplish a small drop?

You either drop with springs/shock combo or coils. Eibach's drop is pretty subtle, pair it with Koni FSD and you are set. As for coils, ST V1 is very commonly seen on this forum since it's cheap and reliable. You want something more fancy, KW, Bilstein, custom Koni coils from HPA are some of the ones off my head.

I run those sizes on stock m sport suspension and I rub on big dips and rub backing up turning left. But your offsets are a little more aggressive than mine.
